Travel insurance: why take out a policy?

Travel insurance policies cover you before and during your trip.

Before the trip (cancellation or comprehensive insurance):

Once you have purchased your trip, you must comply with terms of sale specified by the airline, tour operator or travel agency. The sums retained in the event of cancellation are specified in this document.

The cancellation guarantee in an insurance policy allows for the refund of this fee, for many reasons, also stipulated in the policy.
This guarantee starts on the day you purchase your travel insurance policy through to the day of departure.

With cancellation insurance you can recover the outlay for your trip in the event of unforeseen circumstances preventing your departure.

During the trip (comprehensive insurance):

The assistance guarantee in an insurance policy allows for repatriation if necessary, the coverage of healthcare fees, etc.

This guarantee starts on the day of your departure through to your return.

The repatriation and assistance guarantee covers healthcare fees worldwide, 24/7.
